Unusual note

The developer rarely speaks about himself, but exceptionally, I wanted to tell something.

I think LaTeXiT has become a great tool along the years, and I am happy to provide it as totally free. That won't change. However, I am in a part of my life where money is also important for my family life, and it would help me right now to get some reward for the work I have done so far in LaTeXiT.

If you are an individual, just ignore that. But if you represent a laboratory or a company and think that LaTeXiT is of great value for your day-to-day work, would you consider making a little donation ? I think that I could add a link from within LaTeXiT to a list of sponsors, like "LaTeXiT is supported by…" This would be a good way to thank you (apart from keeping on developing the software, of course).
